More Bird ...


I’ve never been to college although I've studied Anthropology and Ornithology - I gained my degree and information from listening to 78rpm records.

I Remember You, it was A Night in Tunisia – or was it April in Paris? I Love Paris. I was drinking Swedish Schnapps and eating Peanuts, Salted of course, when you came along from Out of Nowhere.

We touched glasses and you said, “Cheers, Lover Man
I said, “Laura, we’re Just Friends.” 
          
This Hot House on Dewey Square was giving me the Blues and they weren’t Cool.

I had a Dizzy Spell as Quasimodo approached with the bill. I said that I must go for a Wee. Bread is your only friend but I’d ate the bread and didn’t have the bread to pay for the bread so I wrote a cheque to pay the bill although I knew the bill would Bounce - my Billie’s usually do.

She said, “Now’s the Time let’s go do the Hucklebuck     
I ignored the Temptation to make this rhyme …

I put a nickel in the jukebox “Is this the way to Camarillo?

PS: It's the Charlie Parker centennial on August 29 so all are invited to put their thoughts into words.
